WOW man, the is some cool woodwork Wolverine
one think I notice is that you cut through the knee guards, I think you would have a stronger solution if you did not do that, and on the real once they are not cut through.

One suggestion if you havent already thought about that, is that you can cut 2- 3 mm. of the inside og the knee guards and then make an aluminium plate and screw/glue on, then I think you will have a very strong solution.

Just a suggestion, because I think if you put one of your friends into the pit and he dont think about it, then they might break of if he hits one with his foot.

Think about it, and its just a suggestion to you super good wood work  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

My first two pieces of ACES II seat
are the 18 mm thick pieces cut from multilayer wood.

Waiting to fix the problem of 24mm pieces (most)
since it is a measure I can not find for either the multilayer or the MDF!

Looking good!!! :thumbsup:
In regard to the 24 mm pieces. I don't know if you are aware of it, but there are a few errors in the wonderfull Brenda plans. Wralex have made a list (pdf.) about the ones he found. Worth checking before cutting more 24 mm parts, than you actually need..

http://www.viperpits.org/smf/index.php?topic=10721.0

As far as not having any 24 mm at hand goes: My solution whas a simple one: I just glued 2 X 12 mm together and put some pressure on. (or, for that matter: a 6 mm to a 12 mm board to get 18 mm). After letting the glue harden for a while, I had a perfect 24 mm board. Easy does it.

Best regards ;)

Thanks ZoomOut
I know of Wralex corrections, I have his pdf, we are also in touch, maybe he will give me a big help regarding the 24 mm pieces and the "recalculation" of the alternative pieces.

I thought I would add 2mm iron plates plus the thickness of the glue, as shown in red, getting the housing in the inside of the workpiece, also fixed with screws in the widest parts of the plate.
From your ACES building experience, do you think about this solution?

I would need your help .....
Referring to Brenda Make's drawings and in particular to cutting the Back Main Center Panel (Sheet_232_Sheet_03), I did not understand how to make the cut angle, as reported in SECTION A or SECTION B? (see attached picture)

Does anybody have some photos of the piece in question?

Hey Wolverine! Sorry to say that my make is a bit different than usual,because i used every kind of scrap wood i had available. Thus, my ACES is not completely out of plywood. Nevertheless, i hope to make things clear for you.. Here's a picture of mine, where the two red circles point to the angled cuts. The back Main Center Panel is the light-brown melamine part. Your magnification of the plans, shows the panel as viewed from its' side (thin sketch), and dotted lines on the big piece are what you would see if you could look through the wood after making the cuts. I hope you understand what i mean.  :-)
